Sounds odd don't it?? Well..here's why I think, WE as an american people are going backwards.
First let's start with the major concern..racisism. Ya know..(remember..this IMHO)..Since the election of our current president, of which I may add, I had no problem with and given the options at the time, was to me a pretty good choice, but I digress..since the election of our current president I have seen more..MUCH more issues with race then I had in the last many years combined. Why is that?? I mean, what I've been reading in the news is unbelievable and damned near getting out of hand to the point that I swear to you, war is immenent and not a foriegn one!
Blacks (I refuse to call the black race 'african-american'..we are all americans..I certainly don't call myself irish-american indian-american now do I? I never was in Ireland!) again..I digress. What I'm seeing is a lot of the black race screaming racism on a more constant basis then was happening before. I'm seeing a lot the white race screaming 'reverse racism' on a more constant basis then before. WTH??
Have we moved foward at all in our society or have recent developments simply made things worse? Or could it be it was getting worse all the time and the recent developments have just spurred it on? I don't know..I can't tell. It's like....the election of our first black president has made the american people take three steps backward in the race problem..on both sides!
What's going to happen next? How's is this mess going to end? When will we all get over ourselves?
And when I say we are stepping backwards, I don't mean just in with the race issue. Religious issues, self serving issues and even sanctimonious issues!
My gawd, in West Bend, Ill. they want to start burning and banning books again!!!! Why? Because they speak of sex acts, and heterosexual and homosexual acts. Good Grief..where are we heading?? I'm seeing the dark ages around the corner again and it's starting to scare the beejesus out of me.
We have not come as far as I would have hoped in the grand scheme of things, or is it we have come as far as our pea brains will allow and we have no where else to go but backwards?
Feel free to comment..not a requirment by anymeans, just kinda my way of venting!
May those who love us love us,
and those who do not love us,
may God turn their hearts,
and if He cannot turn their hearts
may He turn their ankles
that we may know them by their limping.
